Re: >> Mr Dabbs, do I spot a little bit of green eyed monster?!
Yikes, I though it was called the one-eyed trouser snake. If yours is a green eyed monster you should see a doctor
"and adds a fraction of a delay (a folder opens in a couple of seconds) to your workflow"
Delays are atomic. You can have a fraction of a second or a short delay. This sounds like a long delay.

They had to, the photographer is a reflectopornophile as you'll see if you zoom in on the reflection in the glass vase on the window.
Is probably the change that would solve the most bad things but how likely is it that the US legal system will change?

Reminds me of A Clockwork Orange, just need something to keep the eyes open.
All companies use email so they're all internet businesses now. Except that they all have workers that commute by car so they're in the transport sector. Oh. and they have coffee machines so they're in the agricultural sector.

Bless you, hope the cold gets better.
And thanks for the idea, I'm getting "serious weirdo" put on my CV.
Re: Don't forget one-time-pads are secure
Simply install another link in parallel and send the OTP data from the generator to the other end. Don't forget to subtract 17 from the numbers to prevent snooping.
All fine and dandy until the screensaver kicks in
Then communicator/lync tells everyone you've gone home.
That's why you need http://movemouse.codeplex.com running before you flee.
Who cares? It's made of graphene. Guaranteed to get you laid.
Re: Expert on womens' genitalia
I suspect Ms. Breswell was being modest.
Anyone viewing porn will have seen hundreds of examples of both forms of undercarriage so, yes, male readers of the register probably can talk about the length and expertise of other men's penises if they could drag their concentration away from the screen.
As for recognizing your own bits, I wouldn't even know my own hands unless the picture showed the chainsaw scar on my right palm.
I always breath through my mouth when needing large quantities of oxygen.
Re: Which London?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/London_(disambiguation) has 13 other Londons
These tiny speakers have no base at all. Normal speakers have to have some base otherwise they would not stand up. Try standing an ipad up and it will fall over due to lack of base.
Why the requirement for smart?
Surely they're looking for actors who can play any intelligence level?
Don't tell Anon

Re: Wouldn't a vacuum be better?
Yes, right up until the point you try to move the heads from the park position to the platters.
Re: If only someone had told them..
The front legs take about 50% more weight than the rear so maybe they race without rear shoes.
Re: Good advice
So you're saying let them have phones and tablets and just tell them stories to keep them safe? My kid is stuck with the family PC until after primary school. My kid has been trained to lie about age/sex/location as routine. Other kids may have phones etc. but they usually also have crap parenting too.
> 4,000 per cent as dangerous as the World Health Organization's recommendation
So those things walking around are zombies or the WHO recommendation is not particularly dangerous. "4000% of the WHO recom.." is what you meant. Sticking extra words in a sentence might make you hit your article length target but it can mess up your message.

I always thought it was a groce'rs apostrophy.
Keep up yourself, if she's alive she would be nine which is school age. If she's dead she's not missing.
B&Q are the worst, seems that the machine is weighing the goods (which range from 20kg bags of cement powder to a 5gm pack of picture hanging pins) and complaining when it doesn't add up to the expected.
Unfortunately RDS isn't so when playing my MP3's via a personal FM transmitter I get weird characters in the track title on the car radio.
American Express isn't a credit card, it's a charge card and that's (one of the reasons) why lots of businesses don't accept it.
He should resign
Blatant use of his position in power to financially help his friends. This is getting more and more like China every day.
Pointless photo subject
A photo of printed material is only going to show how the camera reproduces the CMYK inks, That's just three colours and you can bet it will do a good job. Next time photograph a peacock or some flowers or butterflies or even a nice clean red setter if you can find one.
He's an Apple mole
He'll be going to Samsung next.
And those shorts are of an unfashionable length. Shame on him.
Re: Basic questions for DARPA projects
To one decimal place of accuracy: 0.0%
Kids are faster
because they carry less baggage. Emotional, intellectual and flabby. Nice research but kids don't perceive time moving more slowly otherwise the world champion at wiff waff would be six.
Death penalty for companies
We started executing people in earnest when the police and courts could no cope with the scale of crime just after the industrial revolution. We stopped when crime rates fell and we found we were executing children and innocents. We should do the same with companies.
Maybe not close the entire business but just that facet of the business that is guilty, e.g. Ban talktalk from broadband ISP for all the crap I get but not close their mobile phone operation.
You should only apologize for behaviour you can control
Otherwise it makes the apology insincere. Men stare at breasts instinctively just like I stare at well filled trousers. No point in apologizing since we will continue as long as we breathe.
Would prefer higher framerate
I'd be quite happy with 1080p48 or 1080i96, 1080p96 would be great. Not much point having four times the pixels if it means four times as much motion blur. Doesn't involve much more bandwidth either as you can keep the I frames at the same time interval and P frames change less when they are closer in time.
"Actually it's a mystery as to why the UK doesn't speak Dutch"
Not to me, I've been to NL. Everyone there speaks at least one other language fluently, it's their ticket out of there.
A fairly simple fix for this would be for explorer to refuse to run any .exe that has more than one dot in the name. Chances of that happening?
It's still alive and kicking although with AJAX and advertising goodness it's very slow. Last week I attempted to upgrade a Windows XP machine to service pack3 only to find that the download would take 27 hours. Needless to say the box went in the back of my car back to civilization.
Where do I get one?
Motorola F3 owner here but they've stopped production and sometimes it's a bit of a squeeze in the pocket with a set of car/house keys.
I should be a car gizmo designer
I would have had interchangeable pads for each charging standard. The car would come with a blank and each one would be a highly priced dealer fit extra. You could even have double standard ones at even higher prices for when you don't have homogeneous passengers.
What's gone wrong with the auto industry?
Re: GUI designed by engineers? No thanks.
As opposed to designed by??? I'm all for Cleartype fonts everywhere but give me 1980's icons and menus or give me death. XFCE rules!
Actually FVWM2 rules but it's just too much effort to resurrect my old self-modifying pointer position learning functions.
GUIs are not getting better, they just seem to get more designed to blend into a pretty picture. Computer screens aren't for admiring, they're for navigating about and that's easier if the different parts are easily discernible i.e. they clash and look ugly.
P.S. this is a nice icon.
The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.
Try telling that to someone afflicted by disease or disability.
Re: Things we take for granted...
> I od'ed the signon.sqlite and key3.db files in my firefox profile on my laptop. I saw the sites for which I have saved passwords (e.g., The Reg), but nothing resembling the passwords themselves, so apparently they are not stored in cleartext.
They are scrambled and if you know the key you can decrypt them. The key is in the source code ans probably google-able. However, if you use a master password they site passwords are scrambled with that which makes it much harder to crack.
You could try looking through firefox's memory for the passwords or even the master key but that requires super-user privilege and shouldn't be possible unless you run as root or admin.
You could try hunting through the hibernation image but then you should not hibernate a machine without full disk encryption.
You could dump the machine in a liquid nitrogen bath, pull out the memory cards and go through them but it's probably cheaper and quicker to just threaten the owner of the said machine.
